"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Rightful Heir (#6.23)" (1993)
Kahless: I am Kahless. And I have returned.

Kahless: Something still weighs heavy on the brow of the son of Mogh.

[repeated line]
Kahless: I have returned.

Kahless: [telling the story of his sword] I went into the mountains, all the way to the volcano at Kri'stak. There I cut off a lock of my hair and thrust it into the river of molten rock that poured from the summit. The hair began to burn. Then I plunged it into the lake of Lusor and twisted it into this sword. And after I used it to kill Molor, I gave it a name: Bat'leth - the Sword of Honor.

Kahless: Are you contemplating yet another question for me? After three days, I'm beginning to wonder if you know how to do anything else.
Lieutenant Worf: Questions are the beginning of wisdom, the mark of a true warrior.
Kahless: Do not forget that a leader need not answer questions of those he leads. It is enough that he says to do a thing, and they will do it. If he says to run, they run. If he says to fight, they fight. If he says to die - they die.

Kahless: You still do not believe it is me, do you, Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: I want to believe.
Kahless: That is a beginning.

Kahless: Long ago, a storm was heading toward the city of Quin'lat. The people sought protection within the walls, all except one man who remained outside. I went to him and asked what he was doing. "I am not afraid," he said. "I will not hide my face behind stone and mortar. I will stand before the wind and make it respect me." I honored his choice and went inside. The next day, the storm came; and the man was killed. The wind does not respect a fool. Do not stand before the wind, Gowron.

Kahless: You have no joy, Gowron.

Kahless: Kahless left us - all of us - a powerful legacy. A way of thinking and acting that makes us Klingon. If his words hold wisdom and his philosophy is honorable, what does it matter if he returns? What is important is that we follow his teachings. Perhaps the words are more important than the man.
